This co-authored chapter mainly advances the role of somatics within dance education as an emancipatory and world-constituting education. It aligns itself with ecologist Edgar Morin’s call for an ‘Education for the Future’ (Morin 1999) asking for an educational ‘Anthropo-Ethics’ towards the development of a critical planetary conscience and citizenship (1999: 57). It suggests that the construction of somatics as critical studies within dance studies can aid the facilitating of Morin’s call for the study of the human bio-psycho-social complexity and uncertainty, acting as educational agent ‘to humanize humanity’(1999: 10).
